So feeling a lot more optimistic and with my foot a lot less painful (at LAST), we left G to tiling the bathroom splashback and a stern deck picnic table for the summer (told you we were more optimistic) and set off for a decent circular walk which followed the river. Joy oh joy to be out & about again in the sun.
This credit crunch thingy is a bit scary though-look what they've done to this copse: I blame it on the wood burners (who us?); not so much as a twig or bit of bark left, no wildlife cover, no fungi cover, no nothing. Seriously, will comercial logging start doing this as a matter of course. The habitat has been destroyed, it's as if someones been through here with an industrial vacuum cleaner.
Bumped into a BW lass today, she was putting up signs to say that there was a long term mooring available at Cropredy for a 16 mtr boat. Why do they talk metric when we all discuss our boats in feet? Evidently BW's system doesn't do imperial - it might be a minor thing, but it doesn't help rapport. I think I could be turning into a grumpy old woman - we need to get back on the move.
